OSHA investigates two fatal accidents in Larimer County

FORT COLLINS COLORADOAN - Workplace deaths in Larimer County are rare. But a recent incident at a Wellington steel fabrication facility marked the second job-related death locally this year and was just the third since 2013, according to federal inspection records.

William J. Williams, 48, was reportedly impaled by a beam at Front Range Steel on Tuesday when he left his post at a control panel.
